|Sadayatana 175: The Last Sofa - John Tocher|
You buy furniture, you tell yourself, this is the last sofa I will ever need in my life. buy the sofa, then for a couple of years you're satisfied that no matter what goes wrong, at least you've got your sofa issue handled, then the right set of dishes, then the perfect bed. The drapes. The rug. Then you're trapped in your lovely nest, and the things that you used to own, now they own you. - Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club (1996) startartisttitle00:00Grove of Whispers2014-03-22 March Equinox25:37uh...

|Sadayatana 079: The Silence - John Tocher|
Some good Houston noise from Infant Mortality Rate, released through Brownian Motion. Cool tracks from Trust.Falls, from their release "The Road To Pinewood". This is a nice fun dark album with some cool samples. I bitched about it being released "all rights reserved" and they changed it to creative commons. I'm glad they did. Thank you. Some of the new release from Impulsive Habitat "Mecha / Orga" is featured...

|Sadayatana 080: Dead Machines - John Tocher|
A mix of field recordings from my porch and in front of my house, rain and cicadas and drones. Some experimental music, some noise. Was a strange show. I had to go where the sound led me. Thank you to Mystified for creating his "Polka Drones". I had challenged him as kind of a dare over Jack Hertz kidding me about the 78s I play at the end of my show (as if polka music could be a bad thing.) Mystified pulled through admirably...

Show starts with a mashup of Public Domain's "Test Broadcast, Programme 2" and Another Neglected Hobby's "Voltage". I had played Voltage earlier in the week and was impressed enough for another go. Several tracks were played/mixed from The Chestnut Tree compilation. I've been listening to this in the car now for over a week. It will be a while yet before I'm through --it is almost six hours of music...
